Yield
6 servings (serving size: 2 quesadilla wedges and about 1 teaspoon sauce)

This intriguing Mexican dish is savory-sweet. Ripe—but firm—peaches work best; if they're too soft, they'll make the tortillas soggy.

How to Make It

Step 1

To prepare sauce, combine first 3 ingredients, stirring with a whisk; set aside.

Step 2

To prepare quesadillas, combine peaches, 1 tablespoon chives, and sugar, tossing gently to coat. Heat a large nonstick skillet over medium-high heat. Arrange one-fourth of cheese and one-fourth of peach mixture over half of each tortilla; fold tortillas in half. Coat pan with cooking spray. Place 2 quesadillas in pan; cook 2 minutes on each side or until tortillas are lightly browned and crisp. Remove from pan; keep warm. Repeat procedure with remaining quesadillas. Cut each quesadilla into 3 wedges; serve with sauce. Garnish with chive strips, if desired.

Chef's Notes

Placing the fillings on one side of the tortilla and folding the other half over (like a taco) makes the quesadillas easier to handle. Whole wheat tortillas would also be great, offering a sweet, nutty taste. The lime-honey dipping sauce balances the richness of the buttery filling.

Fantastic!

Made these for a late breakfast and they are delicious - I want to put the honey-lime sauce everything! The only change I would make is to dice the peaches. Sliced, they like to squirt out of the quesadilla as you cut or bite down. Otherwise, this is an amazing combination of flavours. I will definitely make it again - maybe with caramelised onions as suggested by a previous review...

I made this tonight and loved it. I made some alterations...but only b/c I forgot something at grocery store. I did not have chives so I caramelized sweet Videlia onion, put peaches on top of onions right before pulling off the heat, let them sit a few minutes then placed in a bowl with the brown sugar. I accidentally misread amount of brown sugar and did tablespoon. Still great, but next time will use the tsp as recipe says. My fault there. I loved the recipe. I used a supermarket brie too...not a triple cream or something I would use if paring with fresh fruits and bread, and it turned out just fine. I will definitely make this again. Loved the unusual pairing of ingredients. The sauce was interesting...very sweet. I think I will add more lime juice next time and maybe a kick of hot pepper...I like hot and sweet together.

I gave it 3 stars because I couldn't find peaches or nectarines ANYWHERE in all of Las Vegas! Lol. I used Pears. My 8 year old ate it, the husband ate it, and my picky 5 year old just wasn't having it. It taste like I was having a snack in France....a nice switch up from regular quesadillas. Hopefully I can try this with peaches in the summer. The honey lime sauce was yummy.

Unique, fresh flavors! I made the recipe first,as an appetizer and assumed it would be a pick-up food~ disappointed with the messiness. BUT this recipe is so flavorful that it's worthy of a knife & fork. I do like it better with whole wheat tortillas, and definitely use the dipping sauce. Love to serve this recipe as a light summer meal paired with rice, (add a little lime zest to the rice as well) and with peach tea over crushed ice. YUM!

Absolutely delicious! Wouldnt suggest it as a meal, maybe more of an appetizer, but regardless, it was amazing!

Made this yesterday afternoon. Used fresh peaches which can be a chore as I had to blanch them so I could peel them first. Also, as no one likes the rind on the brie I removed that though there is no specific direction to do so. I was using a supermarket Brie; perhaps if I had been able to get a better Brie I would have left it on. It is quite easy to make, and while the pairing of ingredients is somewhat unconventional, they do seem to work together. Adult daughter liked them better without the sauce-she thought it was too sweet. I did used more Brie than indicated as we like cheese and everyone agreed they liked the ones with more cheese better. They are messy to eat (the peaches tend to fall out when you take a bite) so would not be good at a dinner where people are dressed up.

I just made these for lunch. Other than wanting to add more brie next time, they were awesome

Awesome! I also added a preserve inside the tortilla. This could be used as a substitute for the honey topping.
